It is that time of the year when the farmers are out cutting hay while the sun shines.
This is what the escaped beetle looks like a "Fionii Quiltoferus." Strangely enough it has a wonderful perfume of Lavender when squeezed.
Seriously if you believe that you would believe anything. You see Fiona had a photo of herself under a Rhododendron bush and a email conversation followed as it does. I wanted to send her a surprise thank you for being such a great sport regarding the rather cheeky Santa machine embroidery samples.
The painted mural in the first photo is on a building in Goomalling. We had a day out there last week and I decided to post Fiona's parcel from there as I knew she would have no idea where it was and what would be inside.
